Cavalier Essentials by Taylor Pemberton

I know a few rugged gentlemen who might appreciate the Cavalier Essentials accessory kit by Taylor Pemberton. Taylor created as a branding and packaging design solution for an assignment—one of the most elaborate and dedicated class projects I've seen.

He developed a sanding technique through experimentation to achieve the frosted/etched design effects, and created an identity of vintage sophistication to answer the question "If Steve McQueen carried a beat-up leather duffle bag on the back of his motorcycle; what would be in it and how would the products look?"

The photos by Collin Hughes and styling for the look book are spot on for the branding and feel of the products. Unfortunately, Cavalier isn't for sale... yet, but Taylor says he'll consider producing the kits if there's enough interest.

The Madbury Club posted an excellent interview with Taylor if you'd like to read more about his inspirations and process. And thanks to Twig & Thistle for sharing this excellent project.
